Moroccos Real Estate Transactions Increased 12 in 4th Quarter of 2018

By Carolina McCabeRabat – In the fourth quarter of 2018, the Real Estate Price Index (IPAI) in Morocco fell by 0.4 percent, according to data released by Bank Al-Maghrib and the National Agency of Conservation, Land Land Records, and Cartography (ANCFCC). The fall in IPAI allowed transactions to increase by 12 percent from the third quarter of 2018. The IPAI is a statistical tool used to measure the relative change in real estate prices over time. Within the calculation, the data takes into account residential, commercial, and agricultural real estate purchases. The data from the central bank demonstrated a fall in real estate prices by 2.4 percent as well as a 1.2 percent price drop in assets for professional use. The price decrease of assets for professional use is attributed to the decline in the prices of commercial land by 0.5 percent and offices by 3.3 percent. In turn, transactions in the category grew by 18 percent, with a 17 percent increase in sales of commercial land and 31 percent in offices.At the same time, residential prices rose by 0.8 percent. The prices of apartments increased by 0.6 percent, houses by 0.8 percent, and villas by 5.9 percent. Despite higher prices, the number of transactions increased in each category as well by 15 percent, 31 percent, and 40 percent, respectively.Read Also: Morocco to Install 550 New Speed Cameras to Reduce AccidentsQuarter on quarter in 2018, the IPAI rose by around 0.3 percent, in turn causing the amount of transactions to increase by 11 percent. However, in the fourth quarter, the IPAI fell by 0.4 percent. Over the year, within cities, residential prices increased by 0.7 percent and agricultural land prices rose by 2.9 percent. However, the prices of land within the commercial sector fell by 17.4 percent.In Casablanca, residential prices fell by 0.4 percent and land prices fell by 3.2 percent. There was an increase in prices of commercial assets by 6.2 percent, and overall, sales grew by 7.4 percent.In Tangier, prices increased by 0.8 percent for residential real estate, 0.9 percent for agricultural land, and 3.4 percent for commercial land use. Attributed to an increase in apartment transactions, sales increased by 8.5 percent.In Marrakech, prices increased by 1.1 percent for residential assets and declined by 0.5 and 2.0 percent, respectively, for agricultural land and commercial land. Correlating with an increase in land sales, transactions in the region increased by 19 percent over 2018. read more

UN warns of hunger catastrophe for South Sudanese children

“The world should not wait for a famine to be announced while children here are dying each and every day,” said Anthony Lake, Executive Director of the UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF). “We all have to do more, and quickly, to keep more children alive.”Mr. Lake and World Food Programme (WFP) Executive Director Ertharin Cousin visited with displaced families seeking shelter at a UN base in Malakal, in the Upper Nile state of South Sudan.The agency heads said they fear a repeat of famines in other parts of the world, where early warnings of extreme hunger and escalating malnutrition went largely unheeded until official famine levels were announced.“WFP, UNICEF and our partners here on the ground have been working tirelessly to bring assistance,” said Ms. Cousin. “But if we are to rapidly expand our operations and save more lives, then we need more resources, and the international community has to act now.”Nearly one million children under five years of age in South Sudan will require treatment for acute malnutrition in 2014, according to the UN. In addition, one out of every three people in the country, the equivalent of 3.9 million people, is estimated to be dangerously food insecure.An estimated 1.5 million people have been uprooted in fighting that started with a political impasse in mid-December 2013 between President Salva Kiir and former Vice President Riek Machar.At a press briefing in Geneva, WFP spokesperson Elisabeth Byrs said that the situation was particularly worrying for displaced people who have not been able to plant crops this year.If the world fails to provide the help needed right now to accelerate and scale up life-saving food and nutrition efforts, UNICEF estimates that 50,000 children could die from malnutrition in the course of this year.In addition, the children are at further risk from insufficient health care and access to safe water and sanitation facilities, according to the UN.Also speaking out about the dire humanitarian situation was the Security Council, which expressed grave concern in a press statement about “the catastrophic food insecurity situation in South Sudan that is now the worst in the world,” as well as deep alarm that the crisis in South Sudan may soon reach the threshold of famine as a result of continued conflict, civilian targeting, and displacement. The 15-member body urged all UN Member States, who together pledged more than $618 million in new funding for both South Sudan and the region in May at the Humanitarian Pledging Conference in Oslo, to swiftly fulfill those pledges and to increase their commitments. The Council, in a separate press statement, strongly condemned the series of attacks launched on 20 July by armed youth and opposition forces, and the 23 July attacks by Government of South Sudan forces, as they fight for control of Nassir Town in Upper Nile state. “The members of the Security Council expressed deep regret at the lack of progress towards peace and reconciliation in South Sudan,” the statement added. “They reiterated their full support for the mediation efforts of the Intergovernmental Authority on Development (IGAD) and urged all parties in South Sudan to immediately cease hostilities in accordance with the signed cessation of hostilities agreements, and to resume comprehensive and inclusive peace talks.” read more

2015 NBA Playoffs Preview

Derrick Rose is back in time for the playoffs. Unfortunately for the Bulls, he’s not the Derrick Rose of four seasons ago, the one who won the MVP award and led the Bulls to their only conference finals since Michael Jordan’s second retirement. Since then, Rose, slowed by injuries, has played just 100 regular-season games and one playoff game. Now he is the only Bulls starter who rates below league average. That’s not enough to make Milwaukee the favorite in this series. Two Bucks starters are below league average, and Milwaukee will have trouble scoring with an offense that is well below league average. The Bulls should win this series — and enjoy the win, because in half of our simulations of the playoffs, they go out in the next round, most likely to LeBron James and the Cavs. — Carl Bialik Western ConferenceEach team is led by one of the best players in basketball: Stephen Curry on Golden State and Anthony Davis on New Orleans. So why do we think Golden State has a 92 percent chance to advance? Because Curry is better, and has much better teammates. Draymond Green, a top contender for Defensive Player of the Year, rates higher than Davis in the Real Plus-Minus player ratings we’re using from Jeremias Engelmann and Steve Ilardi. Warriors sub Andre Iguodala would be the second-best Pelican. But this might not be a sweep: In their two games against Golden State in New Orleans, the Pelicans won once and forced overtime in the other. But Golden State’s formidable offense should dominate the Pelicans’ subpar D. The Warriors look a lot more like a team for the ages — with an impressive 48 percent chance of winning it all — than like first-round upset fodder. (We were a little stunned by that 48 percent number, but Basketball-Reference.com gives the Warriors about the same odds.) — Carl Bialik You might think the Celtics should just be happy to be here. After all, in late February, they only had a 12 percent probability of making the playoffs, according to the FiveThirtyEight NBA Power Ratings. But rather than merely showing up, getting their souvenir T-shirt and accepting a first-round loss, Boston could give LeBron James and the mighty Cavaliers more trouble than they bargained for. While we can’t derive much meaning from the Celtics’ combined 216-168 margin over Cleveland in their two April matchups — the Cavs were mostly resting their key players — Boston is solid at both ends of the floor, with a great group of guards and a lot of depth. Over the course of the entire season, they were better offensively (relative to the league) than the Cavs’ defense was, and that only includes a few months of Isaiah Thomas. Our model says the Celtics are still unlikely to pull the upset, but they have the ingredients to be much more of a pest than they seemed to be a few months ago. — Neil Paine Portland won fewer games than Memphis (51 to 55) during the regular season, but because the Blazers won the comparatively weak Northwest division, they are the No. 4 seed in the Western Conference and the Grizzlies are the No. 5. But that seed advantage isn’t worth much. Since the Blazers had fewer wins, they will still be on the road for four of their seven potential games against Memphis. Making matters even more complicated, this series is so close that the question of home court could end up making all the difference. Only a tenth of a rating point separates them in our most recent power rankings. Our model gives the Grizzlies a 54 percent probability of winning, but that number would flip around to 53 percent for Portland if the Blazers had home court. Of course, the Grizzlies earned their home-court advantage by winning more games (against a tougher schedule, no less), and this arrangement is good for Portland, too — a 46 percent chance against Memphis is preferable to a 24 percent chance versus the Clippers, which is who they’d face if the conference were seeded purely by record. But this inverted 4-versus-5 matchup is another example of how convoluted and arbitrary the seeding process is in the NBA. And it’s another argument that the league should perhaps just ditch divisions (if not conferences) entirely. — Neil Paine With the latest FiveThirtyEight Power Ratings ranking the Spurs and Clippers as second and fourth, respectively, this matchup is one of the most compelling first-round matchups in recent memory.The defending champion Spurs enter this tournament as the No. 6 seed in the Western Conference — far lower than the No. 2 seed they could have had if they had won their final game against the Pelicans on Wednesday. Despite that loss, they had a 21-4 record over their last 25 games, reasserting that they’re contenders despite a 19-18 stretch in the middle of the season.The story of their year has been the breakout of last year’s surprise finals MVP and zero-time All-Star Kawhi Leonard. The Spurs went 46-18 with him in the lineup, with an average margin of victory of 7.8 points per game — which would be second to Golden State’s 10.0 and matches the 7.8 they put up last year. Leonard’s 2014-15 Real Plus-Minus of 8.35 was second in basketball behind Stephen Curry’s, ahead of well-known small forward LeBron James’s. Oh, and he led the league in steals per game.The Clippers are no slouches, either — their SRS3SRS is a team’s margin of victory, adjusted for its strength of schedule. of 6.8 is second-highest in the league behind Golden State’s 10.0 (San Antonio is third, with 6.34). They’ve now won either 56 or 57 games in every full season of the Chris Paul/Blake Griffin era, yet their dynamic duo has not made it past the conference semifinals.Although the Clippers have home-court advantage, the FiveThirtyEight simulations give the Spurs the edge, with a 53 percent chance of advancing. In fact, despite being projected to play any Game 7 from here on out on the road, San Antonio has the third-best chance of winning the championship, at 12 percent. The model gives the Clippers the fourth-best chance, at 8 percent. — Benjamin Morris It’s current MVP contender versus aging MVP winner (but the current contender is the one with the beard). James Harden versus Dirk Nowitzki. The Beard led the league in WAR, according to ESPN’s Real Plus-Minus metrics. With Harden, Houston has the edge — a 66 percent chance of prevailing, according to FiveThirtyEight’s projections. Beyond Harden’s consistency, the Rockets have otherwise ridden the injury luck roller coaster. They enter the playoffs having lost two important starters: versatile big man Donatas Motiejunas and the feisty defender Patrick Beverley at the point. On the other hand, Dwight Howard has returned after missing half the season. The Rockets will need him to maintain their solid +3.2 defensive rating.For the Mavs, it’s been a tale of two seasons. After surprising the league with a hot start, Dallas stagnated after the All-Star break, going 14-13. In FiveThirtyEight’s latest NBA Power Ratings, the Mavs rated as the worst of the Western Conference teams to make the playoffs — even behind the No. 8 seed New Orleans Pelicans. — Andrew Flowers The NBA playoffs are finally upon us, and like the 16 teams vying for the Larry O’Brien trophy, we’ve come prepared — not with basketball skills, mind you,1We shudder to think about what the advanced metrics would say about a FiveThirtyEight pickup team. but with graphics and numbers. Using the latest (postseason-optimized) version of FiveThirtyEight’s NBA Power Ratings, we simulated the playoff bracket 10,000 times, counting how often each team won its first-round series (as well as tracking which teams won the NBA title most often). We also put together charts highlighting each team’s key players, along with their multiyear predictive Real Plus-Minus2This is a slightly different statistic than the RPM you can find at ESPN.com because it uses data from seasons prior to 2014-15. We like the multiyear version because, among individual player statistics, it is the best predictor of future team outcomes. ratings, plus a comparison of both teams’ strengths and weaknesses according to the four factors of basketball. (Note that in some of our write-ups below, we use single-season RPM, so those numbers will be slightly different than the multiyear RPM we list in the charts.) So get settled in, maybe throw some chalk in the air, and enjoy the brutal, glorious two-month journey that is the road to the NBA championship. Eastern ConferenceThe Brooklyn Nets will not win the NBA championship. No, really: We ran 10,000 simulations of the playoffs, and the Nets were the only team to never win it all. They have only a 10 percent chance of moving on from their first-round series against the Atlanta Hawks. This is among the most lopsided matchups of the first round. The Nets, ranked No. 22 in FiveThirtyEight’s Power Ratings, are by far the worst team to make the postseason. With their 38-44 record and -2.9 point differential (the only playoff team in red), the Nets are lucky they’re in the Eastern Conference — further momentum for reform to the NBA’s postseason structure.Atlanta is coming off a franchise-record 60-win regular season; this should be a cakewalk for the Hawks (even after losing defensive stalwart Thabo Sefolosha to injury after a run-in with the NYPD). Atlanta is well-balanced: +2.9 points per 100 possessions on offense and +2.0 on defense. The Nets have a pedestrian offense (+1.1) but are a disaster on defense: At -4.7, their defensive rating is the fifth-worst in the league. If the Nets avoid a sweep, it’ll be an achievement. — Andrew Flowers This series features two teams that started out the season looking like they might be the next big thing (at least in the Eastern Conference). The fourth-seeded Toronto Raptors began the season 7-1 and made it all the way to 24-7 before a four-game losing streak started their 25-26 finish — with their final record only a one-win improvement on last year. The Wizards started out 4-1 and made it to 19-6, but have been 27-30 since, ultimately improving on last season’s 44-win campaign by just two wins.Both teams are led by All-Star point guards, Toronto’s Kyle Lowry and Washington’s John Wall, with Lowry making the All-Star team for the first time in the eighth year of his career (his third with the Raptors). ESPN’s Real Plus-Minus for this season ranks them as the fourth- and sixth-best point guards in 2015. Lowry performed a little worse than last year; his RPM dipped slightly from 4.3 to 4.1 and his WAR (wins above replacement) dipped from 11.6 to 9.4. But for Wall, 2014-15 was a big improvement on the year before: His 4.7 RPM and 12.1 WAR were both up from 2.2 and 8.3 last year, respectively.The FiveThirtyEight simulations give the Raptors a 60 percent chance of winning this series but don’t see either team as a championship contender. They give the Raptors a 1 percent chance of winning the title and the Wizards an even smaller chance. In the 10,000 simulations we ran, the Raptors or Wizards won the championship only 108 times, the fewest of any of the eight first-round matchups. — Benjamin Morris read more

Ohio State womens basketball blown out ousted from Sweet 16 by Tennessee

OSU senior guard Ameryst Alston (14) dribbles the ball during a game against Wagner on Nov. 22 at St. John Arena. Credit: Elizabeth Tzagournis | Lantern PhotographerThe last time the Tennessee and Ohio State women’s basketball teams met before Friday was in the 2011 NCAA Sweet 16 round. Fast forward five years to Friday night, and the two had a rematch in that very same rebound.The No. 7 seed Lady Vols were not the favorite coming into the matchup with the Buckeyes in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, but they disregarded the predictions from analysts and dominated the third-seeded Buckeyes 78-62.Tennessee came out of the gates strong and played with efficiency, taking quality shots from all areas of the court. Redshirt sophomore guard Diamond DeShields left the game for a stint with an injury, but would later return to contribute an all-around performance to the Lady Vols’ success.Tennessee took control of the contest in the first half by breaking the press with ease and using its height in the paint to its advantage.Tennessee’s post play was led by redshirt sophomore center Mercedes Russell who went a perfect 6-of-6 from the field, taking over the OSU forwards. The Springfield, Oregon, native showed poise on the block with her effortless post moves and displayed her clean shooting form, putting the ball through the nylon throughout the evening.Along with Russell’s success, senior forward Bashaara Graves also didn’t miss a shot in the first half, shooting 5-of-5.OSU, on the other hand, was far from perfect, struggling to get an offensive flow in the first 20 minutes of play. Only shooting 25 percent as a team in the first quarter, the Buckeyes had to find a solution to their offense if they wanted to keep it close going into the locker room.Missing their lead defender, senior guard Cait Craft, to a season-ending hand injury, the Buckeyes didn’t have a player to turn to shut down the Volunteers scorers.Senior guard Ameryst Alston, who has been struggling to perform because of a wrist injury suffered in the Big Ten tournament, did not want her senior year to end earlier than it had to be, ignoring the wrist pain and completing some of the acrobatic shots that she regularly converted before the injury.Sophomore guard Kelsey Mitchell took matters into her own hands for the rest of the first half, knocking down a slew of 3-pointers and finishing the half with 11 points.Even though OSU trailed after the first half of play, the Buckeyes did not show the urgency that they needed to catch up to the Lady Vols. OSU ignored the offensive strategy that it typically followed throughout the year and lacked energy on defense, putting the Scarlet and Gray in even more of a hole as the second half of play got underway.Tennessee’s offensive movement continued to be pristine and showed shades of coach Pat Summitt’s rosters back in the day. The Buckeyes simply had no answer for Tennessee and were unable to enforce their high-velocity pace that has been their go-to all season long.Russell would go on to score a game high 25 points and grab 14 rebounds, while Graves finished with 14 points and nine boards.Despite her injury, DeShields ended her night with 10 points and dished out seven assists, while grabbing five rebounds as well.On the Scarlet and Gray side, Alston led the Buckeyes with 21 points, ending her collegiate career on a strong note. Mitchell would follow her with 20 points, though she shot just 5-of-15 from the field.With the loss, the Buckeyes will board the plane back home to Columbus to begin their offseason, while the Lady Vols are set to continue to the Elite Eight to take on Syracuse and compete for a chance to make it to the Final Four. read more

Lavenders career day leads OSU to comeback championship

With the clock ticking toward zero and the game in the balance, the No. 10 Ohio State women’s basketball team had a decision to make.Needing a basket to win the Big Ten Tournament Championship, who takes the last shot for the Buckeyes?The decision wasn’t too difficult to make. Center Jantel Lavender drew a foul and nailed a pair of free throws with 1.9 seconds remaining to propel the Bucks (30-4) over Iowa (19-13) with a 66-64 victory and into the Big Ten Tournament title Sunday in Indianapolis.Lavender was firing on all cylinders against the Hawkeyes, scoring 35 points and grabbing 10 rebounds.She scored 23 of OSU’s 33 points in the second half, when the Buckeyes made a furious comeback, rallying from a 49-33 deficit to eventually tie the game at 60-60 with five minutes to play.The junior center from Cleveland, Ohio, made 14 of her 25 shot attempts and all seven attempts at the free throw line.The teams arrived at the championship bout on completely different paths.Ohio State won the regular season championship, its sixth in a row, with four games remaining on its conference slate.At 10-8, Iowa finished five games behind the Buckeyes in the final regular season standings. But the Hawkeyes beat Penn State 82-75 and upset No. 23 Michigan State 59-54 to reach the title game.It appeared they would finish off their Big Ten blindsiding when they jumped out to the 16-point advantage, but Lavender’s relentless effort in the post earned OSU its second consecutive conference tournament title and an automatic bid to the NCAA Tournament. read more

Study finds you can fight fires with electricity

first_imgAs the saying goes you should fight fire with fire. Researchers from Harvard University have found that the saying should actually be that you should fight fire with electricity. The discovery, which was presented at a meeting of the American Chemical Society (ACS), could open up a whole new genre of fire-fighting devices to compliment foam, powder and other substances used by firefighters today. The discovery is based on an observation which is over 200-years-old that found electricity can affect the shape of flames and even put them out.The study was conducted by Ludovico Cademartiri, Ph.D., and his colleagues in the group of George M. Whitesides, Ph.D. at Harvard University, and funded by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency under the U.S. Department of Defense and the U.S. Department of Energy. It found that when they connected a 600-watt electrical amplifier to a wand-like probe they were able to shoot beams of electricity capable of putting out a flame more than a foot high time and time again.The 600-watt amplifier has about the same power as a high-end car stereo system, but Cademartiri believes only a tenth of the wattage is needed to suppress flames meaning a portable electrical device could be made. Such a device wouldn’t be practical for large fires like forest fires, but would be valuable fighting fires in enclosed spaces such as those on armored trucks, planes, and submarines. It could also create paths for firefighters to enter a blaze and to establish an escape path for people.The electricity works on the fire by charging soot or carbon particles within the flames so that they respond to an electric field. This allows the heat and the distribution of flames to be controlled. For this reason, it is believed the technology not only has implications on fire fighting, but could improve the efficiency of other technologies including car engines, power plants, welding and cutting torches.Read more at the ACS press releaseBrian’s OpinionTalk about a futuristic way to put out fires. Just imagine seeing a firefighter pull out a wand to shoot beams of electricity in front of them acting like a shield to push flames out of his or her path. Also, think of what this might mean for fire suppression devices used in buildings and submarines.As we all know, water sprinklers can be valuable for putting out flames, but the trade off is that water also ends up damaging everything it falls on. A beam of electricity would be less destructive, though it probably wouldn’t be the best thing for data-centers or personal computers. In fairness, neither is water, but at least only electrical equipment would be damaged using electricity.It’s amazing to think this technique has been known about for over 200 years. Unfortunately, it has taken that long for researchers to look into what could be done with the knowledge. Now we know it may not be too much longer before we equip firefighters with their own kind of light-saber to fight fires.last_img read more

I didn’t think we deserved to lose the game with the commitment we put in.”“It had all the ingredients of a local derby.”There was a tone of swings when Moore was asked about conceding a late goal of such nature and he replied by referencing Brentford’s equaliser at the end of a game against West Brom.BIRMINGHAM, ENGLAND - MAY 11: Dwight Gayle of West Bromwich Albion celebrates after scoring his team's first goal during the Sky Bet Championship Play-off semi final first leg match between Aston Villa and West Bromwich Albion at Villa Park on May 11, 2019 in Birmingham, England.

Govt makes a succession of payments to catch up on InterHealth Canada

first_img Related Items:interhealth canada, payments, premier rufus ewing, tci hospitals Beaches puts former Premier on blast about controversial pier Row over Grand Turk infrastructure reaches fever pitch in Parliament Recommended for you Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppProvidenciales, 03 Jun 2015 – Government said it would clear up back monies owed to InterHealth Canada to ensure there was no disruption in service to the general public.Premier, Hon. Dr. Rufus Ewing: “Another payment is being processed currently to be paid either today or tomorrow for the month of April, in the amount of $2,264,212 and the payment for the month of May, because we pay in advance of the month, the payment for May will be made shortly.”This information surfaced during May 12, 2015 House of Assembly Debate, where the Premier admitted that payments to Interhealth Canada were not up to date, due in large part to discrepancies in the billing to government. A parliamentary questioned leveled at the Nation’s leader and Health Minister by the Opposition Leader revealed that TCIG is behind on the clinical payments but not the infracal payments. Premier, Hon. Dr. Rufus Ewing: “The delays were due mainly because there were some discrepancies and due to lack of information and there was some dispute in regards to the invoices, those have been clarified – partially, but to the satisfaction that they payment – we think it is prudent that the payment be made so as to not put in jeopardy the provision of the clinical services at the hospital to the people so that all individuals can get their clinical care. Nonetheless, we still will be in search of additional information that is required to make the necessary adjustments.”In total, TCIG pays nearly $4 million per month for the clinical and infracal costs for our TCI Hospitals combined. The Premier said the invoices in dispute are likely to change and that the reconciliation process takes place quarterly. During that Question and Answer period on May 12, it was also replied that the Draft Immigration Bill would be tabled in parliament before the end of June.

first_imgA public health advisory was issued Wednesday due to higher-than-normal levels of bacteria in ocean waters at Seaside Beach in Clatsop County.Increased pathogen and fecal bacteria levels in ocean waters can come from both shore and inland sources such as storm water runoff , animal waste from seabirds, pets and livestock, sewer overflows and failing septic systems.Water samples indicate higher-than-normal levels of fecal bacteria, which can result in gastroenteritis, skin rashes and other illnesses. Direct contact with the water should be avoided until the advisory is lifted, especially for children and the elderly, who may be more vulnerable to waterborne bacteria.While this advisory is in effect at Seaside Beach, visitors should avoid wading in nearby creeks or in discolored water and stay clear of water runoff flowing into the ocean. Even if there is no advisory in effect, officials recommend avoiding swimming in the ocean within 48 hours after a rainstorm.State officials advise that the status of water contact advisories at beaches is subject to change. For the most recent information on advisories, please visit www.healthoregon.org/beach or call 1-877-290-6767.Although state officials discourage water contact, they continue to encourage other recreational activities such as walking, playing on the beach, flying kites, and picnicking on these beaches because they pose no health risk even during an advisory. Neighboring beaches are not affected by this advisory.last_img read more

Obama vows to flex presidential powers in speech

first_imgo Southwest Washington’s representatives in Congress react to the address.o The full text of the address, as transcribed at The Washington Post.o GOP response by Cathy McMorris Rodgers, R-Wash.WASHINGTON (AP) — Seeking to energize his sluggish second term, President Barack Obama vowed Tuesday night in his State of the Union address to sidestep Congress “whenever and wherever” necessary to narrow economic disparities between America’s rich and poor.He unveiled an array of modest executive actions to increase the minimum wage for federal contract workers and make it easier for millions of low-income people to save for retirement.“America does not stand still and neither do I,” Obama declared in his prime-time address before a joint session of Congress and millions of Americans watching on television.Draped in presidential grandeur, Obama’s hour-long address served as the opening salvo in a midterm election fight for control of Congress that will quickly consume Washington’s attention. Democrats, seeking to cast Republicans as uncaring about the middle class, have urged Obama to focus on economic mobility and the gap between the wealthy and poor. His emphasis on executive actions was greeted with shouts of “Do it!” from many members of his party.last_img read more

Social Media Doesnt Work Very Well Without Good Consistent Content

first_imgThe Online Publishers Association yesterday released some topline results from a new research study called “A Sense of Place: Why Environments Matter.” Conducted by Harris Interactive, the study examined how consumers perceive content in different online environments, and whether those perceptions impact consumer responsiveness to advertising. Harris polled more than 2,900 adult U.S.-based online consumers about their perceptions about three environments: media properties (such as ESPN.com, NYTimes.com, etc.), portal channels (i.e. AOL News, MSN Money) and social networks (Facebook, MySpace, et al.).What I found least interesting about the results is that consumers are more likely to trust content on media sites (72 percent) than from portal channels (60 percent). What was most interesting is that, despite all the hype around social media right now, only 23 percent indicated that they trust content from social media environments. Consumers who recall purchasing products from a site’s advertisers are significantly more likely to do so from media sites (8 percent) than portal channels (5 percent) or social media (3 percent).Meanwhile, a new report from the Nielsen Company says the popularity of social media “is undeniable,” with users spending nearly a quarter of their time online on social networks and blog sites. So, publishers the industry over are rushing to social media platforms to engage their users in the environments they now reportedly spend one out of every four minutes in, but those users still don’t trust the content/advertising they find in those environments. Awesome.I passed the OPA report along to Junta42 founder Joe Pulizzi to get his take on the report. What he found even more interesting than the reported lack of trust/response to social media sites was the study’s omission of the corporate brand environment. I think he has a point. The buzz I’ve heard is that users are increasingly turning to brand sites directly instead of media sites.“If the goal of the research was to help brand marketers understand the value of placing advertising on branded media sites, the research still leaves a lot of questions unanswered,” Pulizzi tells me.  “The challenge for brand marketers is not necessarily whether they should advertise on a media site versus a portal versus a social network.  They are trying to decide whether they should advertise, or whether they should invest more of their marketing dollars into their own engaging content.”Pulizzi says that trend of users going directly to a brand’s site instead of media outlets will continue to grow as more content is created by those brands. “Brands are developing sophisticated content strategies to take advantage of not only search, but lead generation programs and social media as well,” he says. “Social media doesn’t work very well without good, consistent content.”last_img read more

Alaska News Nightly Tuesday July 9 2019

first_imgDavis Hovey, KNOM – Nome Dry weather could exacerbate wildfire risk in Interior Public safety officials discuss AG visit, rural justice While much of the focus this month has been on the vetoes, state senators in Juneau raised alarms about another budget issue: the money swept from state budget accounts into a harder-to-access piggy bank, the Constitutional Budget Reserve. Gov. Mike Dunleavy’s cuts to Alaska’s university system could dismantle a statewide library system that allows patrons to easily request more than 3 million titles from libraries across the state. At a news conference in Wasilla yesterday, Republican lawmakers issued a request to Alaskans: Please, stop showing up at our houses to plead with us about the governor’s budget vetoes. Constituents also showed up in person in Wasilla to make their case. The Fairbanks City Council has finally declared its support for overriding Governor Mike Dunleavy’s budget-cutting vetoes. The council and Mayor Jim Matherly had been under mounting public pressure to take a stand on the issue since Dunleavy announced his vetoes on June 28th. Stories are posted on the APRN news page.

Houston Job Growth Expected To Bounce Back Next Year

first_img To embed this piece of audio in your site, please use this code: Listen 00:00 /13:11 Flooding from Hurricane Harvey cost the region thousands of jobs but also led to growth in retail sales from replacement vehicles, furniture, and construction supplies for damaged homes.Researcher Patrick Jankowski with the Greater Houston Partnership says “We’re seeing a lot of activity now that’ll surge by the middle of the year. But this time next year, most of those homes will be repaired — at least, hopefully they’ll be repaired — and that will even start winding down.”Jankowski says Harvey definitely had an economic impact.“You can see in the the building permits,” he said. “But it’s not had as big an impact on employment as we thought it might.”GHP’s 2018 Economic ForecastJankowski told Houston Matters that, overall, construction is actually slowing because most home repairs take just a few weeks or months, compared to the years it takes to construct an office building. And he says recovery for the energy industry won’t occur until crude prices approach $60 a barrel.MORE: Full Conversation On Houston Matters X Sharelast_img read more

PlayStation patent hints at adding new content to classic games

first_imgIf there’s one thing fans of a classic franchise hate, it’s when new content is added to their beloved media. Everyone is generally at peace with an HD remake, as adding that layer of high definition to an otherwise unchanged game rarely harms the product. However, when you add new content to a beloved franchise — as George Lucas quickly learned with Star Wars, but didn’t seem to care much about anyway — fans sour on the change. A new patent suggests Sony might be the new George Lucas, adding new content to old, classic games.The patent — filed back in 2012 but recently made public — could make use of the Gaikai streaming that has been rumored to be the backbone of Sony’s eventual backwards compatibility plan. Rather than just offering the world unchanged classics, the patent suggests Sony can modify old games on the fly, adding new mini-games or challenges into the mix.Though we have yet to get any solid details about how Gaikai streaming will be integrated into the PS4 and perhaps PS Vita, this patent is at least one way to make you want to play Symphony of the Night yet again. New challenges open up new ways to play old games, and this tech could even lead to trophy support for older titles.At any rate, adding in new challenges (and thus, trophy support) is a much less offensive crime than, for example, adding Cloud into every other Final Fantasy game in the vein of Hayden Christensen’s Anakin Skywalker.Until release, there’s no telling if the patent is meant to significantly modify old classics, or just add in some ultimately shallow mini-games to keep you entertained when you’re fighting Psycho Mantis for the millionth time in your life. At least the potential of adding some content into old games is more intriguing than simply playing those old games once again. Maybe it could even one day lead toward every game in the catalog receiving an HD update.last_img read more

Of self and the other

first_imgIn describing the arts, the ancient Indian canonical text Chitrasutra encompassing the theory related to visual art i.e. paintings and sculpture describes their disciplines to be one of the noblest offerings to the almighty. Intertwine this thought with the expression of the age of miniature, give it the garb of watercolour and tempera, playing with sufism and women who are distinctly Nayikas blended in with sentiment of Sringar Rasa — you get the works of Satish Chauhan in the show titled Inner Universe.  Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’With an artistic vocabulary culled over more than two decades, Chauhan has been experimenting with the ethos of expressionism, the medley of miniature techniques and the subject of men and women with a subliminal perception of the art works being an offering to the god, transporting the viewer to another realm almost seeking communion with the almighty.“I started blending the elements of Mughal and Kangra art with details of contemporary reality” says Chauhan. “For me a painter is like a yogi, lost, in his art. Like a sufi disconnected from the immediate but active in a state of consciousness which is different from the normal state of waking.” adds Chauhan. Also Read – Leslie doing new comedy special with NetflixHis recent works depict Nayikas romancing the clouds celestial dancers and musicians with long flowing lehengas like skirts, ablaze with elements and mythic symbols born of romance, eroticism, mystery, nobility and exoticism, submerged in invigorating romance of birds and beauties in the clouds of gods perhaps deep in meditation.Despite moonlit romanticism and the perfume of Ottoman Empire legends, works produced by those under the spell of the miniatures can best be characterised as academic art- scrupulous in historical and pragmatic detail, and strongly narrative- resonant with photgraphic immediacy. These paintings go beyond, they gleam like little jewels, they are notable for painstakingly accurate realism of character and setting, particularly natural elements and materials in service of mood and figurative representation of anatomical excellence and emotional poignancy. These works are small, delicate and often luminous. They use progressively fewer colours, and most share one quality: they are composed of very specialised shapes and have a kinetic buzz.Where: Shridharini Art Gallery, Triveni kala sangamWhen: March 31 till April 9 Timings: 11 am till 7 pmlast_img read more
